Medical Terms

Maybe it's because I studied medical terminology in college—back before I realized that I didn't really like needles and being in a hospital gave me the whim-whams—that these definitions seem so funny. Or, possibly it's because they are funny that they seem so ... well ... rib-tickling! Regardless of the reasons for my own enjoyment, I know you'll get a kick out of them.

If you get a sec, drop off a comment and tell me which one you enjoyed the most. My favorite was the definition for "benign." I'm still chuckling over it.

I especially liked tumor- extra pair. I like to be pre-paired.

Very cute. I didn't know doctors had a sense of humor. I guess they all get it out of their systems while still in med school.

"Ultrasound" sounds like something I used back in undergrad.

I liked lactose, I will never think of that word in quite the same way again. These definitions were all really cute though it was hard to pick a favorite. Congrats on the Silver Quill! Quite exciting!!
